When PIC16F1936 was brought for my project, the chips accidentally scattered when I was trying to open the lead of the tube. Then, I gently pushed them inside the tube while they were on the floor. At one end of these chips, I placed a mouth of the tube and I pushed the other end of the chip with the help of pen. I haven't yet send it to the assembler. I just want to know if they could have been damaged before sending them for assembly.
